Michelle, the young woman who works behind the desk at Dr. Folske’s office (my ART Doc), is always pretty busy. I’m known for being a little “chatty” at times (that’s a shocker, I know), but I think I do pretty good while I’m in the waiting room with Michelle - I smile and say “hi,” but then I let her go about her business.
A few weeks back, I started going though a stack of old Runner’s World magazines. I clipped a few articles/workouts that I wanted to keep, and I recycled the rest of them.
“What’s the point of these 2 stories?” you ask?
Well, as I was going through the magazines, I recognized someone on the cover of the May 2008 issue:
I e-mailed Dr. Folske and asked if “his Michelle” was “THEE Michelle Lilienthal.” (I actually ended the e-mail with “If so, oh my God, OH MY GOD! Why didn’t I know it was her?!?”)
He e-mailed me back and said, “Yep, THEE Michelle Lilienthal!” He told me to bring in my Runner’s World for an autograph. Who am I to argue with a Doctor?
So I brought in my Runner’s World. I was even dork-tastic enough to ask for a photo:
“To Steve, keep running!” No problem, Michelle!!
